my son is afraid of girls

He has spent the last school year with 16 boys and 2 girls, he is 5 yrs old.
He is outgoing when it comes to boys.....but get him near a girl and he freezes up. He doesn't know what to say and just stands there like he is lost. Is this normal? how can I get him to understand that girls are okay to talk/play with.

  • My 4 year old is the exact same way. He has boys and girls on his t-ball team, he is great while playing with other boys but will completely freeze if a girl talks to him. Its kinda cute and completely normal.
